Hot Flashes, Night Sweats & Mood Swings, Oh My! Help!!

Even though I haven't quite reached my 42 birthday, my hormones have been getting wackier and wackier over the last couple of years. For about 8 months I've been having hot flashes. Not fun, but totally manageable for me. I just grab up whatever's near by and fan myself wildly for the minute or two it occurs, then life goes on.

But...
But!!!
Then I started having night sweats!
VERY not fun.

The New, Improved Yves Saint Laurent MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS

Thanks to Influenster, I got to try out the new, improved formula that YSL used on their classic MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS. This mascara is supposed to give a "False Lash" effect.
Since mascara looks are VERY subjective
(some want length, some want volume, some want definition, some want very dramatic lashes, others want more natural looking lashes), I won't try to tell you about how good or bad it is. What I'll do is show you what the mascara looks like on me.
